Devil’s Heart
Adapted from 1883 Signature Syrup site.

Rob’s work colleague in the US has his last day with the company today, before he retires. Pete is his name, and he is an American born Dane.

Pete was one of the founding members of the company Rob went to work for a couple of years ago. Then they were acquired by Rob’s old work company, and Rob ended up back there again. It’s with the original company that we got the chance to live in Europe in the first place.

Rob asked for a drink that had a rock ‘n’ roll theme, and kind of metal along with that. You all probably know those Nordics love their heavy metal.

Well anyway, here is the reason.

From 1972 to 1978, Gasolin’ was the most popular rock band in Denmark.
Gasolin’ was a Danish rock band from Christianshavn, Copenhagen, formed by Kim Larsen, Franz Beckerlee, and Wili Jønsson in 1969. Now, I had never heard of this band. But that doesn’t mean much anyway. All of Denmark probably knows them.

Pete especially knew them, because Wili Jønsson is his uncle.

I’ve met Pete, he took us to a great place on Long Island for dinner when I traveled with Rob on a work trip a while ago. So I wish him all the best for his future, and I’m sure he won’t get bored.

I used

  • 20ml Spicy Syrup-which I made especially for this drink
  • 60ml Silver Tequila-Fortaleza- I upgraded 😉
  • 10ml Agave syrup 2:1 with water
  • 80ml Cranberry Juice
  • 2 limes. Juiced

This made a double drink. Enough to fill up this rock theme mug.

Add all ingredients to your shaker, with ice, shake and strain over fresh ice.

Garnish
2 pineapple fronds, and a slice of jalapeño.

I made the syrup by using a cup of Demerara sugar, with half a cup of water, bring it to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Add a sliced Jalapeño, and continue to simmer for 3 minutes.
I then cooled and strained. Adding a bit of Vodka to the syrup to stabilise it.
